EPDM Roofing Urmston
EPDM Flat Roofing Urmston
Getting a EPDM rubber membrane in Urmston for your roof is a bit of a no-brainer.
It lasts longer than other waterproofing membranes, making it more cost-effective on price.
And, you’d also be doing your bit for the planet.
Leading environmental pressure group, Greenpeace, in their report, Building for the Future, highlighted how the making and disposal of PVC roof membranes releases toxic chemicals into the environment which not only pollute our wildlife but potentially our bodies too.
They recommend using EPDM as an alternative.
At Improve A Roof, we fully support EPDM roofing in Urmston.
We also strive to deliver products and services of superior quality to meet the requirements of customers, while being environmentally aware.
To that end, we are pleased to offer in Urmston industry-leading EPDM rubber flat roofing solutions from Firestone.
What is the EPDM Rubber membrane?
Firestone RubberCover EPDM is a 100% cured single-ply roofing membrane made of a synthetic rubber Ethylene-Propylene-Diene Terpolymer.
Since 1980, more than 1,000,000,000 square metres of Firestone EPDM membranes have been successfully installed on commercial, industrial and residential roofs worldwide.
We offer various roll sizes, the biggest we provide is 15m wide and 61m long.
How long will an EPDM Rubber Roof last in Urmston?
The membranes give unequalled resistance to UV radiation, ozone, alkali rains and high or low temperatures.
Studies show that the membrane has a life expectancy of over 50 years, even when exposed to sunlight.
Is maintenance required?
No specific maintenance is required for a Firestone RubberCover EPDM roofing system on your Urmston home. However, we would recommend a yearly inspection.
How can the membrane be repaired in case of damage?
The membrane can be easily repaired with a piece of Quickseam SA flashing, for flat areas. For damage at corners, a Quickseam Corner Flashing patch must be used instead.
Is the membrane available in different colours?
We only provide the membrane in slate grey.
